When I was 12, I took judo lessons. Mr. Sam Nishi
was powerful; wise. He almost broke my arm;
stopping just before 'we' knew it would crack:
"... to teach you not to fear pain." (thanks)
He taught me balance, nutrition and respect for women:
"They are smarter and stronger than us."
He told me that people without imagination are poor.
Happily, my characters take me with them; how kind of them.
Toad hops around the land, in full Toad grace, saying things like:
“I have to be my own judge because nobody else understands me!”
I received this note:
“Today, I read 2 of your short stories - I think your mind is a work of art!
Thank you for injecting a bit of joy into my day." C. Fairbanks.
